College is not high school; it is much different. You are expected to be more independent than your high school teachers. Your parents will not be there to ensure you are up and ready to go for your 8 a.m. class. If you enter the lecture hall uninformed, you may not perform your best and could miss important opportunities and deadlines required for your class. You will be your own advocate when it comes to reaching out for assignment clarification, study strategies and academic help. Your basic courses will help you decide your major or shape your path to graduate school. Later you will move to your major-specific courses. Communication with your academic advisor and professors is recommended. Work with your instructor to find internships or student organizations that fit your major.Do not worry about being too early; you would rather arrive early than late! If you are late, you will draw a lot of attention when you walk. Additionally, finding a seat could be a hassle if you arrive late. If you’re too early, you can wander around, read, or grab a coffee.
